El Coto 'Coto de Imaz' Rioja Gran Reserva

Fabulous Gran Reserva Rioja. Old school in many ways but also with a core of fabulously rich fruit and a hint of new oak amongst the more classic meaty, savoury cedary flavours going on. Decanter World Wine Awards 2019 Best in Show 97pts "This dark, relatively tight-knit Rioja proves that the Gran Reserva category doesn't just indicate the supremely well-aged, relaxed and reposeful style of Rioja, but can also serve to draw drinkers' attention to outstanding wines of density and tenacity which still have a way to run along their potential ageing trajectories. Look out for dark, urgent fruits here sweetened and back-lit by cunningly angled oak, with intense, deep, fresh and searching flavours in which the 10% of Graciano seems to be working overtime. A Rioja of innate drama." Down 2 a bottle too!
